The specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth are to:

  • improve the level of key competences and skills of young people, including those with fewer opportunities
  • to promote participation in democratic life in Europe and the labour market, active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, social inclusion and solidarity
  • foster quality improvements in youth work
  • complement policy reforms at local, regional and national level
  • to support the development of knowledge and evidence-based youth policy as well as the recognition of non-formal and informal learning
  • enhance the international dimension of youth activities and the role of youth workers and organisations as support structures for young people
